Max BMW Opinions/Prices?

So I'm going to need to take the bike in for a scheduled service. Anyone know what the price is for this at Max BMW? I was thinking around $200ish, assuming nothing is wrong with it. Anyone ever take their bike, or know someone, who's taken their bike to the CT one?

Let me help yo out here.
This may be better in Regionals

It is impossible to tell you what a service would cost without specifics like:
1. Year
2. Model
3. service needed (i.e. mileage)


Good luck

The BMW motorcycle dealers are all about the same. Greater Boston Motorsports should have an advantage, since it's in Arlington.

If the routine service includes a valve check, it will be more like $300. At least it does on most motorcycles.

I use Razee in RI for my KTM 690R, but I understand their service dept has a good rep among BMW and Ducati buyers too. It's about the same distance as Max.

Service

How about asking the dealer?

At an average of $90/hr plus parts a few hundred $$ doesn't go far.

YMMV

Thanks for the input. I've been to GBM before, and the people seem nice enough but I might just drive it to a MAX or might even check out Razee.

Max BMW is a completely class act, with some of the best parts and service people in the business. I'd have no qualms about recommending them. They do the job correctly, with no BS. I am no fan of most dealers, but Max sets the standard.
